Josh, a third-generation Koskoff at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, is renowned for his dedication and innovative perspective. Like his predecessors, he views lawyers as fighters who should enhance clients' lives through the legal system, emphasizing that the law must serve the people, not just the powerful. His genuine care for clients has earned their trust. Josh has secured substantial medical malpractice verdicts in Connecticut and tackled cases of national importance. He notably achieved a historic settlement for nine Sandy Hook families against the Remington Arms Company and represents them in a lawsuit against Alex Jones. Josh has also filed suit against eight assault weapon manufacturers on behalf of a Las Vegas shooting victim's family. In a groundbreaking move, he sued Harvard University on behalf of a descendant of an enslaved man named Renty and his daughter, Delhia, in 2019. Regardless of the case, Josh's greatest reward lies in improving his clients' lives through relentless advocacy.

On December 14, 2012, at 12 noon central, only two and a half hours after the Sandy Hook shooting and as anxious parents gathered in a firehouse near the school to await word as to whether their children were alive or dead, Alex Jones went to work. Taking to the airwaves from his Infowars studio in Austin, Texas, he decried the shooting as a staged event; a false flag perpetrated for the benefit of “global elites” designed so that the government could confiscate people's guns. This was, after all, Jones Modus Operandi: in the wake of national tragedies like 9/11 and Sandy Hook he would stoke fear, desperation, and hatred by promoting his dystopian world view. His motivation? Money. The more outrageous the narrative, the more traffic to his website, the more traffic to his website, the more products he could sell.

But Jones’ Sandy Hook narrative took an immediate turn on the day after the shooting towards a more specific, darker, more dangerous, and more targeted lie: he told his listeners that the families were actors, that the children didn’t exist, and that Sandy Hook didn’t happen. Thus began a decades long campaign by Jones who returned again and again and again to this lie, launching a continuous sustained assault on these families, driving traffic to his InfoWars empire, and raking in millions. Until the families struck back.

In this presentation, I'll take you through how Alex Jones built his empire and leveraged social media, employed the tactics of dictators and cult leaders, and monetized hate and lies to enrich himself. And I will show you how these families, through their collective courage, took him down. You will see clips from Jones broadcasts, and I'll take you through the ins and outs of the trial that resulted in the largest defamation verdict in American History.
